Dems come to Mic

draft not
a code'
The Black Student Union on
Wednesday became the first student
group to publicly state that Interim
University President Robben Flem-
ig's controversial proposal regarding
student behavior is not a "code" of
non-academic conduct.
The group criticized specific
points in Fleming's document, but
affirmed its support for a general
policy against discrimination.
Although other student minority
groups have not made a formal
statement about the new draft, the
BSU statement may lead to more
deviation from the "united front"
advocated by the Michigan Student
Assembly against the draft.
OTHER minority groups,
including the United Coalition
Against Racism, have said they will
release statements about the
document before the University Board
of Regents' meeting next week.
The regents are expected to vote
on Fleming's proposal at the
meeting. The board generally voiced
support for Fleming's efforts in
January, so some have speculated
that this draft will be approved.
Michigan Student Assembly
President Ken Weine was unavailable
for comment last night.
BSU Vice President Stephan
Tibbs distinguished the proposal
from the long and often heatedly de-
bated code. A code would regulate
students with sanctions against gen-
eral misconduct, while the proposal
specifically deals with discrimina-
tion, he said.
FLEMING'S document, revised
from an earlier draft released in Jan-
nary, details academic sanctions -
disciplinary warnings, reprimands,
suspension, and expulsion - for
students judged guilty of racial or
-sexual harassment by a University
hearing panel.
"Students have the right to
protest, to demonstrate, to handle
their social affairs in the manner in
which they see fit," Tibbs said.
"However, we do not feel students are
free to pass out fliers and literature
that advocated hunting of Black peo-
MSA has consistently called the
document a code, saying sanctions
for non-academic behavior limit stu-
dents' rights and might deter dissent.
In holding reservations about
Fleming's proposal, Tibbs said,
"There are too many stop gaps. There
are too many ways it can be altered."
Tibbs criticized the proposed hearing
panel, saying minority students may
not be represented on the panel, and
the faculty member will have the
most input if the vote issplit.

Daily news analysis
The strategies adopted by each of
the five Democratic presidential can-
didates, campaigning in Illinois and
Michigan this week, promise to
leave the race without a clear winner
as the candidates leave the Midwest
at the end of the month.
Senator Paul Simon of Illinois
skipped the 20 state Super Tuesday
contest this week, choosing instead
to concentrate his efforts on his
home state. The senator expects a
strong win in Illinois and a reason-
able showing in Michigan, said
Terry Michaels, communication
manager for the Simon campaign,
"We don't anticipate winning
Michigan, but we hope to make a
significant showing. We plan to tar-
get specific congressional districts,"
Michaels said. He added "we do well
around college campuses and we do
well with labor unions." Assuming
he gets a boost from Michigan, Si-
mon then hopes to win in Wiscon-
sin next month.
BY STAYING out of Super
Tuesday, Simon was able to spend
the time raising funds. Michaels said
the candidate is in a strong financial
Reed Rubinstein, Michigan
Campaign Coordinator for Senator
Al Gore of Tennessee, said Michi-
gan's caucus system - which de-
mands more time than voting in a
primary - places the emphasis on
the strength of the organization and
not the actual number of supporters.
He said "if this were a primary I
would expect to win. As it is if we

finish with any delegates we'll be
happy." He said the next major
states for Gore, who won five of the
17 contests on 'Super Tuesday', will
be Pennsylvania and New York.
With the contest close, the dark-
horses have a strong incentive to
stay in the race. The more delegates
a candidate wins now, the more
bargaining power he has down the
line if a deal is made to choose the
THIS SEEMs to be the
incentive for Simon and Gephardt
who trail Gore, Dukakis, and Rev.
Jesse Jackson in the delegate count.
Dukakis, the closest candidate the
Democrats have to a front runner, is
making a strong effort in Illinois and
is expected to win Michigan. The
governor may still have trouble
putting together a coalition, though.
A high source in an opposing
campaign, who asked not to be
identified, said that while 'attack'
television ads are part of politics,
Dukakis supporters are creating bad
blood in the campaign. He accused
Dukakis supporters of spreading
rumors that Gore supporters would
disrupt a Gephardt rally.
He also said that in Texas,
Dukakis supporters called reporters
and told them that events planned by
other candidates were canceled or

Originally published in the Ann Arbor News, February 12, 19

According to the Ann Arbor News
(February 12, 1988), Michigan has
been chosen as a target for Soviet Bloc
and Chinese espionage agents. The
FBI states, "the University of Michi-
gan performs top-secret government
research in which 'hostile foreign agents'
have an interest."
GBC Shredmaster shredders, avail-
able from Communications Electronics
Inc. have kept more documents confi-
dential than any other brand in history.
Think about it. Today, your trash is
packed with vital information. It pro-
vides every competitor, disgruntled
employee or foreign agent with a data
reservoir that could deal an irreparable
blow to your mission. You need to
make sure this damaging data is totally
destroyed - before it falls into enemy
hands. The 1987 Industrial Security
Manual for Sqfeguarding Classif1ed
Information by the Department of
Defense has approved shredding as a
destruction process which is sufficient
to preclude recognition or reconstruc-
tion of classified information.
In fact, shredders are also very handy
for eliminating administrative, purcha-
sing, personnel and other records that
nre no longer needed. Our shredders

We offershredders for every security
need. Choose a shredder that digests
dozens of sheets at once, or one that
pulls in a stream of EDP paper. We
offer personal-size shredders that fit
right under your desk - or high-volume
conveyor-belt shredders that can accept
piles of paper. You can protect yourself
against industrial espionage and against
liability under the Federal Privact Act
with GBC shredders. All GBC equip-
ment is designed to deliver years of
quiet, trouble-free service.
To complement your security system,
Communications Electronics Inc. also
stocks Sony video surveillance systems
including the new EVT-801 time lapse
video recorder which can store over 16
days of video evidence.
Since Michigan has been targeted by
hostile intelligence agents who may be
observing, analyzing and evaluating
your activities and operations, now is
the time to enhance your operations
security effort. Reduce the opportunity
of a hostile agent or competitor gaining
access to your classified material with a
GBC shredder and Sony video surveil-
lance system from Communications
Electronics Inc. Call 313-973-8888

Ann Arbor and the University of
Michigan draw more than students
and scholars, according to the
state's No. 2 FBI official.
Soviet Bloc and Chinese espio-
nage agents "have very carefully
chosen Michigan as a target," said
Joseph J. Jackson, assistant agent
in charge for Michigan. Because of
that, he said, the state's comple-
ment of FBI counter-intelligence
agents is the nation's seventh larg-
"Spies out here in the breadbas-
ket of democracy? Yeah, that's ex-
actly what I mean," Jackson told a
group in Saginaw earlier this week.

Jackson, 45, is a former U.S. Se-
cret Service agent who joined the
FBI in 1969 and worked asa special
agent in Peoria, Il., Washington,
D.C., and New York City.
Now stationed in Detroit, Jack-
son oversees Michigan investiga-
tions of kidnappings, extortions,
major property and government
crimes, along with international
and domestic terrorism.
The University of Michigan per-
forms top-secret government re-
search in which "hostile foreign
agents" have an interest, he said.
About six years ago, FBI activi-
ties in Ann Arbor were questioned
when U-M professors became con-
cerned about the bureau's inquir-
ies into the activities of a visiting
